ED LIFE SUMMER 2009

An article in my local council's magazine summer edition. Nice to be mentioned alongside Alan Bissett who is one of Glasgow's 'hot young author'.
Author Leela tells her story
EAST Dunbartonshire Council’s
libraries are hosting events
throughout the year to celebrate
‘Homecoming’, the events programme
celebrating Scotland’s great
contributions to the world.
One of these events showcased one
of Scotland’s brightest writing talent,
Leela Soma, who gave a reading at
Milngavie Library. She is a local author
from Milngavie whose first novel
‘Twice Born’ has just been published.
Alan Bissett, one of Scotland’s leading
young authors also talked about his
latest novel ‘Death of a Ladies’ Man’
which is due to be published in July
this year.
Leela said, “The reading was really
excellent. Everyone seemed to enjoy it
and I think it’s a great way to give new
writers some exposure.”
